Summary

The war between Amika and Belleger has raged for generations. Its roots lie in the distant past, beyond memory. Sorcerers from both sides rain destruction down on the battlefield, wielding the six deadly Decimates of fire, earth, wind, water, lightning and pestilence.
Prince Bifalt hopes that Belleger's new weapons technology, the rifle, will provide a decisive advantage. But when Belleger's sorcerers are mysteriously deprived of their magical abilities, leaving them unable to defend against Amika, he must set aside his own deep hatred of sorcery and work to solve this new enigma.
Grasping at any chance to save his beloved homeland, Prince Bifalt of Belleger sets out on a hazardous journey across the unmapped wastelands to the east. With Elgart, his last comrade, Bifalt pursues the long-hidden trail of the one object that might be able to turn the tide of the endless war - a book entitled The Seventh Decimate.
The events that unfold force Prince Bifalt to weigh his stubbornness, his patriotism and his hatred for sorcerers against his sense of loyalty and of what he knows to be right. And as he learns, Amika and Belleger may simply be pawns within an even larger struggle....

Overly histrionic.

The words and, to a degree, the performance are overly histrionic. I find it hard to believe that I loved Donaldson's books so much when I was younger. Quite simply the protagonist here comes across as so stupid that it is impossible to feel connected to his quest. Having said that though, I still found myself sticking with it and weirdly intrigued at the expanded story that will feature in the latter volumes. I'm hoping this will be like the Gap series, taking a slim first volume set-up into a wildly entertaining expanded story.

Thomas where are you ?

I was a little dissapointed that the plot seemed so obvious from early on and seemed a little drawn out ..
.never the less I look forward to part two ... Not on the same level as Thomas Covenant
